Summer Session in Sweden

The Summer Session of NSU is something that can only be experienced - hardly described. The coming session will take place at Wiik Castle, south of Uppsala/north of Stockholm, July 22.-29. 2007 (Swedish-language info with photos here ). More than a hundred participants from eight study circles will be together for a whole week of academic work and - play; with families and without. (A few families were even said to have started here ... )
Keynote speakers: Hartmut Rosa, University of Jena/ The New School of Social Research New York, and Alenka Zupancic, Institute of philosophy, Ljubljana, Slovenia. This combination of critical sociology and psychoanalytical philosophy should be fertile ground for the first, Nordic crossdisciplinary session of Castoriadis studies.

So far this project seems to be under a benevolent star, as several people who are well versed in the philosophy of Castoriadis have announced an interest in traveling from their different whereabouts in Europe, to the Swedish castle. Nothing could make me more happy, I guess,

It is possible to suggest themes for the upcoming sessions. Different aspects of Castoriadis's work, combined with contemporary phenomena and/or other thinkers are desirable. Themes that would interest a broader group of people, including students, are welcome!

The Castoriadis study circle arranges 6 symposia: 3 winter symposia over a week-end and 3 summer sessions over a week, usually in the Nordic countries (Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland). The duration of the project is 2007-2009. A central aim is to produce books, e.g. anthologies.
